Handmade Star, Hattori; Seki, Japan
Hattori handmade 3.5” Stainless Steel Drop Point Hunter
This knife is listed on the Ichiro Hattori site (below). It is identical to the Sharp Model 1000S that was imported into the US in the late 1970s to 1980s. 8" OAL, 3.5" Hollow ground blade of AUS-8 Stainless Steel. The Star M Handmade brand was reported to have been imported from Seki, Japan for K-mart who also offered the Sharp 1000s.
This knife is used as I do not have the box. The sheath is in great condition. These are excellent drop point field knives; the hollow ground Stainless Steel blade is very sharp, cuts and handles extremely well.
Hattori later issued this knife as the H-109 Drop Point Hunter, with a 3 1/2″ Aus-8 blade, Nickel Silver Bolster and rivets, rounded and shaped grained Mahogany handle with brass lanyard hole.
